Java5: The Language, The Libraries, The VM
Java5 introduced a whole slew of new features, including annotations (JSR 175), new language features (the enhanced for loop, generics, static imports, and more), new library support (java.lang.instrument, among others), and some interesting enhancements to the virtual machine itself.
This presentation will go over those features, explain why they matter, and how you can take advantage of them in a variety of different practical ways. (For an audience comfortable with Java 1.4, as a 90-minute or half-day presentation.)
